This is an adaptation of a Weight Watchers recipe and it is delicious! I make this all the time because it is easy, inexpensive and healthy (you can omit or use reduced fat cheese and sour cream).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pan, saute onion, garlic, celery and Serrano peppers until tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add cumin, chili powder and pepper to coat onion mixture.
  3. Add beans and chicken broth reduce at a low boil until sauce thickens, about 15-20 minutes.
  4. Add fresh lime juice.
  5. Serve topped with grated cheese and sour cream and garnish with cilantro and lime slices.

This one's a keeper! So easy, and SO yummy! It's not for those of you who shy away from spicy dishes, though. I didn't change anything, except we used a combo of chicken broth and vegetable broth since that's what we had on hand. Thanks, Sangria!!
